(PSOT: “After the game was concluded, the clubs, with their friends, proceeded to the Four-Mile House (Holder’s), and partook of the good things the host had made ready for them. Here the best of feeling existed, and speeches made, jokes passed, toasts given, and songs sung, after which the Atlantics started for home, where they arrived before ten o’clock, all declaring they had enjoyed themselves as best they could, none the less low-spirited for having been beaten, but live in hope of doing better the next “hitch.”

‘The partial crowd their hopes and fears divide,

And aid with eager shouts the favor’d side.’

I have not learned when the return match is to come off. It is rumored, sometime in September, when the return match of the Osceolas will be played.”)
